HAVANA TIMES — A moderate earthquake struck off the south east coast of Cuba early Tuesday (4:08 a.m.) and was felt in the eastern cities of Santiago de Cuba, Palma Soriano, Bayamo, and Guantanamo, reports earthquaketrack.com.

According to the website, the center of the earthquake was located 27 miles from Guisa, Granma, Cuba.

Thus far there are no reports of injuries or serious damage but a more accurate picture will be possible with the morning daylight.

Southeastern Cuba is used to earth tremors, although today’s 5.4 magnitude quake was stronger than usual.

  • The US EPA under Pruitt will ignore any related quakes around the world, like Cuba, as he did as Oklahoma’s Attorney General as the oil/gas industry turned Oklahoma into the earthquake capital of the US.

  • So far there has been no damage report. One of the big problems is the continuous partial earth tremor damage to poorly maintained houses and apartment buildings. A wall cracks, but that doesn’t get reported.

  • I hope everybody is ok.

  • That explains why I spilled my coffee..

  • I felt it this morning about same time(4.08am) Portmore, Jamaica..
